Blockchain is the biggest challenge faced by antitrust law in the last 20 years. The core features of this technology create numerous issues for our legal systems to the point of endangering them. This is very true for intellectual property law and digital privacy as well. This summer school, a world first, will address all of these challenges from two perspectives: blockchain as the best ally to our legal systems and blockchain as its work enemy. And maybe it’s not all black & white ; )
This summer school is designed for legal experts, including, lawyers, practitioners, master and Ph.D. students (enrolled in a law degree), competition authorities’ case handlers, academics, government representatives, policy officers, judges and anyone interested in understanding how blockchain will challenge our societies as well as our legal systems. Technical knowledge of blockchain is not required (no worries).
